Israel told Kerry they wouldn't return to the peace talks unless they got to blow up some Iranian nuke plants?

Iran should move its 30,000 Jews right on top of every nuke site.

So I ran the name of this city through Google News, and the only people saying anything about a hidden nuclear site are Israeli and self-identified Jewish news sites. They say that information came from "Iranian dissidents." One site actually came out and said that their nuclear source was the LA Times, who got the tip from members of the Mojahedin-e-Khalq (or MEK). If you've never heard of the MEK, they are to Iran as Curveball was to Iraq. If you asked them they'd probably say there's a scary secret uranium storage site under every city in Iran.
In other words: overzealous warehouse fire, isolated incident.

The fire could spread to an 18,000 liter tank!  I mourn the potential loss of 18,000 liters.  If only some TF'ers would save the liters. But, NO!!  They would never soil their elitist hands on mere liters.

/What the fark are 18,000 liters doing in a tank, in Iran, anyway?  Was this some unannounced party?  Was this an Iranian drunk tank?  So many questions.

First thing I thought of.



We had these glow sticks in the army.  On the last day of a field exercise, our company commander opens a bunch of them and pours the glowing juice into a super soaker, then goes around squirting people and things.  I came around the corner, and she squirted me.

Right in the farking eye.

I don't know what's in that green shiat, but I know it stings like a motherfarker, and when it's in your eyes, you see it regardless of whether or not your eyes are closed.  And that close . . . it's damned bright.

Next thing I know, she drags my screaming ass into the command tent, I'm on my back, and she's squirting something else into my eyes . . . turns out it was contact lens solution (or something similar).  Once the shiat's out of my eyes, my vision comes back, and I see that there's staff all around us, I realize my head is in her lap, and the look on her face says "Oh, my career is farked!"

No permanent damage, to either my eyes or her career trajectory that I know of.

Nice! Hope you managed to parlay that into a "You know, you owe me 1 free romp in the sack for this..."

The closest I got to a "cool military story bro!" is one from my dad back in the 60s in then West Germany. After being in the artillery (and losing part of his hearing. No earplugs for you!), he moved to recoilless nuclear munitions, and was in charge of a Davy Crockett team. During war games near the Fulda Gap, they'd lob an oil drum downrange and assume they'd wiped out a Soviet tank battalion (and themselves). They sat out the rest of the games playing volleyball, drinking the good beir and shagging the pretty frauleins, while everybody else did all the hard work.

Despite popular misconception the Davy Crockett wasn't a suicide weapon if it was used properly.

Yes, at max yield you were within the lethal range of the bomb at the max range it could fly.  However, the threat was radiation--and you can shield against radiation.  The angle to the bomb would be low (it's bursting over the enemy target, not high in the sky) and thus all you need to do is get a bit below ground.  Infantry routinely dig foxholes anyway--once the weapon is away the crew dives into foxholes and lays down.

It's not oil. It's "nuclear oil". Extracted from deuterium by using a press.

I'm pretty sure I read about it in a recent alchemy journal, Scientific Alchemican.

If my father were still alive, I'd let you and him argue about the math, then laugh when he was proven right. There's a *reason* the FBI and CIA scouted him. Sadly for him, it was his math skills, which I inherited none of.

/Seriously, good luck out-running the yields he was given, in the weighed down early 60's jeep he and his crew shared.
// One of the reasons I'm a halfway decent driver, is because I was taught how to drive one of those insanely top-heavy hunks o' shiat.
///I mean, really. He'd have a math battle with you, then snatch your beer from you while you were wondering what happened. He was that good. I miss him sometimes. :(

Wish I had some of the old photos my grandmother held onto. Him and his crew, with a Davy Crockett, and a full oil drum with a smiley face on it, for practice. Priceless.
